Thanks Rich! Assuming these guys know their stuff, here is what they say about this "cover":

"Early Morning Rain
Lyrics: Gordon Lightfoot
Music: Gordon Lightfoot

Sung by Phil Lesh with the Grateful Dead in their earliest days..."

can't help with anything concrete William, but for what it's worth, when listening to this 66 show it is all too obvious (imo) that Early Morning Rain has Phil singing lead (or possibly a guest?) the voice is FAR too weak to be Pig (sorry Phil) actually sounds a wee bit like Lightfoot himself (sorry Gordon)

hardly conclusive evidence, but at the end that also sounds like Phil's voice, "Doesn't sound at all how (we) remembered it does it (Marty)?"

"You can't jump a jet plane,
like you can a freight train,
so I'd best be on my way,
in the early morning rain."


edit: one more thing, you can hear organ riffs churned out during the lead vocals, especially during the last verse (just wondering if Pig usually played lines on the keys while he sang lead?)

btw, interesting arrangement!

Yeah, I think it is obvious too...I really always have felt very confident about voices and smells (seriously; most memories for me that are very striking involve both of those...no, only "good ones" for some reason).

And yep, the arrangement/organ is actually something I like, and all the folks I ever play that for really dig it. It has become an essentail "break in" tune for me and newbies...

Good smells emanating from my kitchen right now as holiday baking production gets underway. Always reminds me of my dad, my inspiration to take up baking. Mixing it up as I roll along (all puns intended) this 11/2966 show(s) has a couple of songs I hadn’t heard before. Really dig the organ/arrangement etc.- the sound of the band is really cool and I bet it makes a good intro to the Dead; as well as historically relevant, the arrangements and presentation are probably more accessible to the some folk - more ‘pop’ sounding if you will.

Oh yeah, D! Holiday smells have to be one of the primary kick starters for memory lane...I have been selecting a couple of tunes, always including EMR, when "building" a CD for someone that is being "broken in" to the DEAD. Of course, for me it's easy enough since I stop at end of 71! Not that much to worry about...but that still gives me plenty to work from. Actually, I realize I'd have to have the second boxed set to add in ones from the mid 70s ablums.

As mentioned before I’m sure, the stuff on Workingman’s and Beauty make a swell intro to GD. The Golden Road box is how I first heard stuff from 1966. Watch out for that second one though, Beyond Description – it contains some pretty controversial stuff. :)

Ha! Yes, most certainly...suppose I could get some real mileage out of PoCuca, SBeg, Althea and a few others (as you can see, I use a great many album tunes for the first timers).

Enjoy that bake off!
